UNLABELLED Several studies have shown how cytostatics may cause hypofunction of salivary glands but failed to elucidate any potentially related side effects. Keeping in mind the sialochemical assistance and the role of saliva on the homeostasis of the stomatognathic system, the aim of this study was to establish potential gland disorders in patients(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to assess changes in salivary electrolyte flow and composition and the presence of anti-Ro/SSA and anti-La/SSB serum and saliva antibodies and their implications for the non-invasive diagnosis of SS. STUDY DESIGN 73 patients were studied, divided into the following experimental groups: primary Sjögren syndrome (SSp)(More)
This work presents a chemical and morphological analysis of samples of saliva taken from patients who were under treatment with intravenous chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil and leucovorin calcium. Samples of saliva were extracted from fifteen patients during the three stages of the treatment: The initial stage (previous to the chemotherapy), the(More)
OBJECTIVES High doses of chemotherapy generate DNA damage in patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation (BMT), due to the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). In order to evaluate the local defensive effectiveness of the patient undergoing BMT, the concentrations of the antioxidants superoxide dismutase (SOD) and uric acid (UA) were measured in(More)
One of the main clinical problems during chemotherapy is the occurrence of severe systemic toxicities, including those related to the stomatognathic system, which contribute to reducing the patient's quality of life. The most frequent oral complications are mucositis, dysgeusia, inflammation, gingival bleeding and decreased salivary flow or hyposalivation,(More)
